This week at the University of Liverpool with special live band Stiff Little Fingers.
It wasn't long ago that this Belfast band were sticking together the picture bags for their own records, and before that had trouble finding a venue to perform. So they hired a hotel function room on the pretext of a 21st birthday party, persuading patrons in the car park to 'contribute' to the invitation cards The same enterprise prompted them to form their own label to release 'Suspect Device', a debut single showing their capability of producing an explosive sound.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
